The FMF and Liga MX will enter negotiations for a possible return to Copa Libertadores, Liga MX president Enrique Bonilla said on Monday.
Liga MX has not participated in Copa Libertadores since 2017, while 2019 will be the first time in 26 years that Mexico does not compete in a Copa America.
The biggest problem facing Bonilla is Liga MX’s scheduling. Since Copa Libertadores changed it’s scheduling to became an all-year event, Liga MX has seen the tournament as disadvantageous and of very little help.
Albeit coming close several times, a Liga MX team has never won the Copa Libertadores. Most recently, Tigres UANL forward Andre-Pierre Gignac spoke of the importance of having Liga MX teams play in the tournament, claiming it was an incredible experience for him.
What do you think? Should the FMF do whatever it takes to return to CONMEBOL competitions?
